This paper investigates the enablers and challenges in the implementation of e-Learning policies in three vocational education institutions in Zambia. A total of seven individuals i.e. two managers and five lecturers in the study were interviewed.
The study found that e-Learning was described as having some specific characteristics and also the use of devices. It was also found that respondents had varying levels on the knowledge of national e-Learning policies. The challenges of e-Learning policy implementation were stated as: inadequate and lack of devices, lack of adequate skills, poor attitude and poor support services. Enablers for e-Learning were: learning facilitation, teaching facilitation, communication improvement and training.
The study recommended increased partnership with international organisations and stakeholders in strengthening e-Learning policy implementation, a focused roll-out of e-Learning policy implementation in vocational education institutions, the ministry creating an enabling environment for sharing of good and best practices in e-Learning implementation.

Most helpful paper from Mr Gabriel Konayuma, relevant to the Zambia context though dynamics keep changing. I would recommend, if possible, periodic update of the paper and even beefing it up into a book for wider readership.
